The State of SaaS Sprawl in 2021
Challenges of a Distributed Workforce and Large App Portfolio
When you think of SaaS sprawl, it probably doesn’t seem significant in the context of your critical IT priorities. But the truth is many businesses have a much larger blind spot than they realize when it comes to SaaS apps.
